I won't argue with that, but it's not due to anything the US did, it is due to the practice of communism in reality. People are corrupt and will corrupt the system for personal profit. The reason capitalism works is because corruption is built into it. My simple point is that we wasted a whole lot of lives for a pointless little penninsula that will end up capitalist anyway regardless of what we had done. Additionally, had we not forced them into a situation where they had to be very strongly anti-american, militarizing South Korea against them, they may have already converted and become an ally by now due to market forces, instead of ramping up the hostilities.
This kinda holds true for China too, Chairman Mao was never hostile towards Americans to begin with, but Americans alienated Mao because they are "communists", but communism was just an ideology they adopted to gain power and save the dirt poor mass of China after wars and femines in the 30's and 40's...... Communism is like a heavy duty cardiac stimulant, it's not good for China in the long term but it makes China alive, at least for a while.

Feeding their people? George, you need to read from a more diverse library than the leftist crap that old Unc. Trotsky has been feeding you. How do you account for the massive starvation in 1960s China from Mao's failed industro-agriculture experiments? Or what's happening in North Korea RIGHT NOW ???
Also, I just did a quick google on cuba's literacy rate to confirm another unbelievable statement you made. Sure enough, it is not higher than the US -- perhaps on par or a percent lower. Keep your facts straight.
Dude, what year is it now? What year do you live in? Who is feeding you and buying your national debts?

George,
What a fool I've been -- I'm packing my bags for Cuba tomorrow! Can't wait to smoke me one of those fine cigars with Fidel, and read along in the Havana Times (with all my fellow literate Cubans) about how the residents keep piling on to make-shift rafts to cross the Gulf of Mexico to where the jobs are.
What are you guys smoking down there in Tempe? It beats anything we have here in California.
It sure beats fruits and nuts LOL
